Dreaming with Purpose
Ep. 07 - PART II
Welcome back! I’ve been sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to share part two of this episode.
Last time, we talked about values, superpowers, ideal clients, offers and benefits - the framework for purpose discovery.
Your purpose is best served when it becomes a lifestyle. When you pair your big dreams with a life that is true to your purpose, everything will start to fall into place.
Milestones that were once overwhelming and scary become a welcome challenge, stretching you to your full potential.
Today, we will explore how to dream using your purpose.
Let’s start simple. What is a dream?
The first definition in Webster’s Dictionary is mostly focused on a person’s state during sleep but does note dreaming is “a state of mind in which someone is or seems to be unaware of their immediate surroundings”. I like that. I’ll tell you why in a minute…
but for now, back to definitions...
Webster’s second definition of “dream” is “a cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal” This alludes to having a vision of things desired.
A vision (according to Oxford Languages) is the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom – as in a vivid mental image – especially a fanciful one of the future.
So let’s take some time to put a picture with your ideas – we will bring a vision to life by conscious and purposeful dreaming. If you are in a place to do so, close your eyes and visualize where you want to be one year from today…
What does your business look like?
We will start with the physical.
What does your business look like Physically?
Meaning, do you run your business online or, have store front? Are you operating in a single location, or multiple locations? Do you travel?
Do you have team members? Or are you a one man show? Who do you want to work with? Collaborations and teamwork happen in business all the time, even if you are a solopreneur. Think about the people you want in your circle.
How do the physical and relational aspects of your brand make you feel?
How do you want to feel about your business?
How do you want people to feel when they work with you?
How will this new version of your company come to life if you stay exactly who you are right now? Is it possible to attain this vision for your business as the person you are or do you need to change a few things?
Which circles back to that Webster definition of dream from the beginning - “a state of mind in which someone is or seems to be unaware of their immediate surroundings”
Comparison will never get us to the realization of our dreams. Your dreams have been given to you for a reason and they are YOURS. No one will have or do a dream exactly the same way you do.
That leaves us with IMPACT.
What is the Impact your vision will have?
Give yourself permission to dream big dreams aligned to your purpose and choose to become who you need to be to make those dreams come true.
